Stewart Bridgewater "Stu" Linder (November 8, 1931-January 12, 2006) was an American film editor with 25 credits.[1] He shared the Academy Award for Film Editing for the 1966 film Grand Prix (directed by John Frankenheimer), which was the very first film on which Linder was credited as an editor. Linder is particularly noted for his long collaboration (1982-2006) with the director Barry Levinson.[2] Perhaps the best remembered film from their collaboration, which extended over 20 films, was Rain Man (1988), which won the Academy Award for Best Film. Linder won an ACE Eddie award for editing this film, and was nominated for both the Academy Award and the BAFTA Award for Best Editing. The 2006 film Man of the Year starring Robin Williams is dedicated to Linder's memory.
